This was a media extravaganza based on one very cold winter in the
North East. This has become an Urban Legend.

Really?

Harry Bryden at the National Oceanography Centre in Southampton,
felt the analysis by his group demonstrated Europe faced another
ice age.

A quick check on the net punching in his name reveals that you have misquoted him. He states that changes in the water currents "due to global warming" may make England and Northern Europe colder. His date is being disputed, but in either event he is NOT predictiong global cooling

(Snip)

There were others as well so it was not just media outcry nor was
it an Urban Legend. I do not know if there is global warming or
not but I do know that scientists not many years ago were
predicting cooling and something akin to an ice age. There were
indeed scientists making such predictions.

I am referring to the often quoted MYTHS that climatologist were predicting global cooling and another ice age in the 70's. It is in fact an urban legend.

Weather predictions are very tricky, right now even a forecast for
seven days in advance is far from 100% accurate. That makes me
think that I will have shuffled off this mortal coil before global
warming makes a great impact on the human race.

I'm going to be sixty, even so, I wouldn't invest in Florida land deals at this time...:)

Shoot lots of pictures, always fill the frame
